Alec Martinez is not practicing this morning, but Andrei Loktionov is, on left wing with Mike Richards and Dustin Brown. Here’s how the Kings’ forwards are lined up this morning, with five players in the fourth-line mix…

Gagne-Kopitar-Williams
Loktionov-Richards-Brown
Clifford-Stoll-Hunter
Moreau/Fraser/Richardson/Lewis/Westgarth

That second line could be sexy.

Loktionov wasn't playing wing because the Kings had Penner and Parse in the lineup/available. Loktionov was never competing against Moreau and Hunter. Loktionov will be sent back down when Penner comes off IR. Depth is key in the NHL.
